INDIAN RIVER COUNTY -- A new partnership has formed between Riverside Theatre and the United Way of Indian River County.
Theater patrons this season may have been asked to donate $1 per ticket to the local United Way, or may have noticed the United Way thermometer on Riverside Park Drive, or maybe saw the United Way banners in the lobby of the theater. These are all signs of a growing relationship between the theater and the community it serves.
"Riverside Theatre is an important Vero Beach asset drawing people to this community. It is a quality organization that wants to be a leader in giving back," said Michael Kint, CEO, of the United Way of Indian River County.
"We consider ourselves an integral part of this community and are committed to supporting United Way as they look to advance the common good," said Allen Cornell, producing artistic director, Riverside Theatre. "We fully trust United Way of Indian River County to make the most of the dollars raised by the generosity of our patrons."
United Way of Indian River County, a locally governed and managed nonprofit organization and one of 1,800 locally run United Way affiliates in 45 countries and territories, seeks to advance the common good in the county in the areas of education, income and health.
It is a leading supporter of front-line service providers using hundreds of volunteers annually to raise local dollars and invest those monies in programs and initiatives that will do the most to improve the quality of life for people in need.
Riverside Theatre is committed to providing a total theater arts experience that entertains, challenges and educates both adults and children by producing quality works from Broadway, off-Broadway, and regional theaters with an emphasis on high- production values; providing the youth of the community with a broad range of education opportunities that will cultivate tomorrow's artists and audiences, while building the skills of today; and providing a nurturing and collaborative environment for the artists, educators and staff.
